Grab the family and take in Bridgewalk 2022, a free unstructured walk across the Macdonald Bridge that takes place from 2 to 4pm after the MACPASS Miles.

Halifax musician John Alphonse and a Dixie-style band will be roaming the bridge and a community band will keep things hopping on a stage near the Dartmouth end of the bridge.

Young and old, physically fit and those fitness-challenged will enjoy spending a couple of hours 90 metres above Halifax Harbour. Baby strollers and wheelchairs are welcome. Cyclists will need to remain in the bikeway.
